EURONEWS/ Come riconoscere un finto Olio Extravergine

Euronews ci ha chiesto come riconoscere un finto extravergine, leggi la risposta di Sabina qui:

Judge the oil by the cover

When buying or ordering extra-virgin olive oil, always vet out the information on the bottle. Make sure there's a date and location for the harvest, check if you can scan a QR code to trace the production chain, and look up for seals from a third-party certifier, tester or consortium, like DOP or IGP. "The most advanced oil consortiums use blockchain systems for traceability", says Sabina Petrucci, an Italian olive oil producer. But she adds that "checks are never enough" and consumers should be made "more aware" of the existence of such traceability tools.
